The artist incorporated aesthetics inspired by Chinese ceramics, specifically the glazes used in pottery making during the Ming Dynasty.Born on January 13, 1850 in Longton, United Kingdom, Moore joined his fathers pottery business, Samuel Moore & Son, in 1865 and took over the company upon his fathers death in 1867. His works are in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the British Museum in London, among others. Moore died on April 3, 1935, at the age of 85 in Draycott-in-the-Moores, UK. Please check more details on Wikipedia. Moore's knowledge of ceramic chemistry was considerable and he was widely consulted by the ceramics industry on technical matters. Throughout the 1880s and 1890s it is likely that he was experimenting with and perfecting the specialist and difficult glazes with which his name is now principally associated.  In 1902 he was elected president of the British Ceramic Society. In 1906 his son Bernard Joseph Moore began working with him. Moore commissioned the pots from another maker and had them decorated at Wolfe Street.
His decorators included Dora Billington, Hilda Beardmore, Hilda Lindop,  Reginald Tomlinson,  and John Adams. Flambé glazes make use of metallic oxides, usually iron or copper, fired to temperatures up to 1500º C in a flame-burning kiln. At a critical moment, the air feeding the flame is shut off, and the flame, seeking oxygen for combustion, combines with oxygen in the glaze oxides, reducing the amount of oxygen they contain and changing their colour.
The potter manages the process, which is not entirely predictable, to produce reds, purples, blues, lilacs and greens. Frederic Rhead, a contemporary writer, said of Moore in 1906, He is master of all the resources of the potters craft, and his work alone shows Staffordshire still capable of coping with the potters of France. It is technically triumphant, and it is quite delightful (though in a sense disappointing) to find in his show-room a case of pottery - perfect in colour and artistic feeling - which he will not sell, but prefers to retain for mere pride in its accomplishment. Moore exhibited internationally and received many awards for his ceramics.  In 1910, a fire at the Brussels Exhibition destroyed much of his work.
He closed the business at Wolfe Street in 1915 but continued to work as a ceramic consultant. There is a portrait of him by Oswald Birley in the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery.
